Customer Question
It's lying on the...

It's lying on the floor doesn't eat or drink, it's 16 years old and this has never happened before

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the bird's name?

Pepe, is it because of age?

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Pepe?

Yesterday he was exposed to the air conditioner, like 2 Mts away, normally I put some blankets over the cage so the air doesn't hit it

While you kept on asking for more and more money it died, so just give me my money back this site does not work
Bird Specialist: August Abbott, CAS, Certified Avian Specialist replied 10 months ago

I'm just an independent contractor here; I don't ask for money or have anything to do with that. I responded the minute I saw your question post.

I am truly, very sorry for your loss. I can promise you that given the quick demise there wouldn't have been anything anyone could do. I know this doesn't make the pain you're feeling right now any less, but you are not to blame for this.

I'll try to direct your question to customer service for a refund, but again, this isn't anything we experts know about. It would be helpful if you did the same - between the two of us, someone should respond to you

What Customers are Saying:

Thank you so much!!! I love this service. It has given me peace of mind and extremely valuable information at an affordable price 24/7 to care for my beloved pets. THANK YOU

LindaCenterreach, NY

I found my experience with you to be very positive. Not only did the vet answer my question thoroughly, he left me with a better knowledge to follow up with my vet.

MarilouEast Taunton, MA

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA
